Re: My Trek Through Enterprise: Season One ^ Yes, I like to have my own first-hand opinion about things. Otherwise, you never really know. Sorry about that. I decided after Fight or Flight not to do full analytical reviews. I was kind of half-way doing them up to that episode and then just decided to post my overall impressions of episodes after that. Anyway, Hayes. I like him, but I think he's a little too rigid. It's the kind of rigidity that comes from either not having enough experience (which I think is the case for Mr. Hayes) or being "set in your ways," which mostly applies to more senior and seasoned military leaders. That could prove to be a problem down the line, but so far I don't see an issue. What Hayes showing up does bring about is Malcolm's insecurities. He has an "us vs. them" mentality as soon as the guy shows up. I do hope he can get over that and realize that he's earned his position and there's no need to fret. Over all, I think having more security on the ship is a plus. Hayes seems to be very duty-bound and honorable, as well as his team.
